The upside of all the rain is that I am forced to stay inside and sew - bugger.
The stitchery comes from Sarah Jane Studios - here's a more accurate link to them. (I have updated the link in the earlier post). There is a cute Autumn stitchery there too.
I discovered that the sashiko thread was too thick and when I tried to 'strip' it back to two or three strands it just fell apart. I went back to the old DMC thread.
The one impediment to sewing today was Lucy the Cat. Who tried sleeping on the ironing board on top of the half square triangles in process (notice the angry ears). Then she remembered the well-placed cushion on the sewing table.
